On Wednesday, hear how Caleb's faith got him through his accident and recovery.
"On December 19, 2017, two brothers enthusiastically were on their way to a University of Oklahoma basketball game. It was only one week before Christmas when rain covered the road causing many accidents; and, the vehicle hydroplaned placing the boys into a deadly spin. When the truck finally came to a stop in the middle of the interstate, an eighteen-wheeler was unable to keep from broad-siding the driver’s side where Caleb Freeman was instantly crushed and Clayton, his younger brother, was wounded.
"On this fateful day, Caleb’s life would hang in the balance with less than a 5% chance of survival. Word spread immediately on television networks and in social media as people prayed and God began to intervene. Jeremy Freeman, the pastor of First Baptist Newcastle, Oklahoma, and his wife Emily, had faced the worst kind of loss in losing a child previously. They were now thrust into an enduring struggle for life, once again, with their oldest son. Clayton was released; but, Caleb’s brain stem injury was more traumatic due to the swelling.
"Prayers are still being offered for Caleb to speak clearly, to walk unencumbered and even with a desire to run."
